DIY Decorations For Thanksgiving – THANKFUL Free Printable Thanksgiving Banner
- THANKFUL banner printable PDF
- color printer (we’re fans of the HP OfficeJet 4650 ink jet color printer)
- 8.5 x 11 inch white card stock paper, matte finish
- hole punch
- twine or ribbon (the twine really looks good!)
- tape for hanging
Step 1: Print out the PDF file
Print the THANKFUL banner printable PDF file on your color printer using your white card stock paper. There are 5 pages in this PDF file, so you’ll need at least that many pieces of card stock paper. Click HERE or click the photo above. The PDF file will open in a new window.
Step 2: Cut out all of the banner shapes
To start creating your free printable Thanksgiving banner, cut out all of the letters of the word THANKFUL and the leaves, optional. I think they look cute, so I added them for a little extra fun! Grab your hole punch and punch two holes at the top of each banner tile, leaving about an inch apart in the center.
Step 3: Threading the banner together
Lay out your letters in order, partially overlapping each one. Pull out your twine or ribbon and without cutting just yet, start to thread your printable Thanksgiving banner together. Start to thread going down through the first front hole, then up from behind through the second hole. Repeat until finished with all letters, than tape the twine in place on the back of each letter to prevent sliding. Cut the twine from the spool, make sure you allow extra twine at the ends on both sides of the banner for hanging.
Step 4: Hang and admire!
Drape the banner across the fire place mantle or other desired area and tape or tie the ends on to secure. Decorate the area with other fall items, I added things such as mini pumpkins, faux leaves, and other personal touches. Admire your beautiful banner, it is a cute and super affordable DIY Thanksgiving decoration!
